12:05 pm
with the water still flowing, they need to do all that concrete out of the way and get down to the pipes and find out what the problem is to begin with. there is no time frame on when this will be fixed. at this point, for residents and businesses in this area, a big inconvenience. >> president barack obama won his reelection bid late last night despite predictions of a very tight race. but the status quo election results, the question is whether the white house and congress can resolve a host of domestic issues. >> in celebrating victory, president obama extended an olive branch to republicans. >> and in the coming weeks and months, i am looking for to reaching out and working with leaders of both parties to meet the challenges we can only solve together. reducing our deficit, reforming our tax code, fixing our

the sistine wind is 15 miles per hour -- sustained wind is 15 miles per hour. we see waves anywhere from 60 to 9 feet, which is exactly what we saw -- from 6 feet to 9 feet, which is exactly what we saw with sandy. they got the majority of the sand out of the parking lot. they are concerned that, during high tide, it will push back sand that game. as far as ocean city officials, they are still monitoring the storm and will make decisions on any sort of emergency preparations later today. it is not super storm sandy, but the waves crashing and certainly remind you of it. a nor'easter is expected to hit the ocean city area later this afternoon with sustained winds of 30 miles per hour and gusts of 40 miles per hour with a rain-snow mixed. they're still monitoring the
12:17 pm
storm and have not put any emergency plans in place. the biggest concern will be flooding, especially areas below 17th street associated with storm surge. we spoke with a local volunteer firefighter about how he and other emergency personnel are readying themselves for the storm. >> we met with them last night. they told us it would basically be flooding and stuff like that, nothing really big like what we had with sandy. >> once again, a live look at the ocean. it is pretty choppy out there. you definitely don't want to go out today. high tide hits here in ocean city around 1:50 p.m. we will monitor it and have updates for you at 5:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. let's head back to the studio for a look at where this storm is going.

near hartford county. this is impacting -- this is not impacting baltimore city. ocean city is experiencing light rain at this moment, nothing too heavy just yet. the storm system will continue to track up north. that is why we think we will miss the worst of it. the storm will stay away from baltimore. if we get anything come it will become the second -- from the secondary low. the question is whether it will come in as a wintry mix. 23 m.p.h. the guests in ocean city. only gusting to about 11 miles per hour in downtown baltimore. the family what to expect that of a nor'easter, some very strong wind. it is starting to engineer ed wood.

that is about it. in everyone else's -- it is starting to edge in near edgewood. that is about it. everyone else is dry. a light wintry mix possible to the afternoon, especially after sunset. remember, the sun sets just before 5:00 p.m. now. if we get accumulation, it should be on grassy areas. not really expecting too much on the roads. it will be in the northeastern parts of maryland that we should see most of the snow sticking. temperatures will drop into the 30's overnight. we expect temperatures above the freezing mark. that is crucial because it does not allow the snow to stick and it does not allow the roads to i sace up. then we want things back up as we go to the weekend.
12:21 pm
-- we warm things back up as we go to the weekend. >> that means another round of flight cancellations. united airlines will run 500 flights out of new york. thus have to pay the usual change fee if they read -- passengers will not have to pay the usual for change fee if they rebubook of themselves on-line. about twice as many people will travel this december over last december. that means about 30% of the population will need to get from point a to point b next month. but those traveling will not be going as far as they try to keep their spending down. time for our medical alert. this time of year, the u.s. stores to see more heart-related deaths. but the cold may not be to blame.
